Shrien Dewani was being treated in a secure mental health hospital for depression and post-traumatic stress disorder so he can be extradited to face the charges.

His family said he had now been transferred to a different hospital "suffering from chest pains", and tests suggested he had reacted poorly to medication prescribed as part of his mental health treatment.

Dewani's bail conditions were altered at a hearing at Westminster Magistrates' Court, his family added.

Dewani's 28-year-old wife Anni was shot when a taxi the couple were travelling in was hijacked in the Gugulethu township on the outskirts of Cape Town in November 2010.
